Lion Rock Country Park is one of the three earliest country parks of Hong Kong. Designated on 24 June 1977, it covers a wide upland region set between North Kowloon and Shatin. The park borders on Kam Shan Country Park to the west by a boundary line on Tai Po Road, and commands a total area of 557 hectares. Lion Rock is a narrow mountain range stretching from east to west. The southern slopes are abrupt with thin vegetation. By contrast, the northern slopes are nourished by abundant streams, which in turn give rise to flourishing flora.

Just like the neighbouring Kam Shan Country Park, the geological age of Lion Rock Country Park dates back to the Upper Jurassic Period. Common granites of this region are Sung Kong, Cheung Chau and Ma On Shan Granites.
